Realme updates the 3 Pro to its new Android 10-based UI
Realme has announced a new software upgrade for its 3 Pro, a 2019 phone powered by the Snapdragon 710 SoC. It is not a new version of ColorOS, the device's current Android skin, however, but a build of this OEM's first in-house Android skin instead. It adds a completely re-vamped interface, as well as new features such as one-handed operation and cross-OEM file-sharing.
This appropriately-named Realme UI was introduced alongside the new X50 5G. It is intended to replace ColorOS on all this brand's devices in the future, and has been developed with a color palette, icons and widgets intended to set it apart from their former Android skin. Its maker also asserts that it comes with improved performance compared to older ROMs.
The 3 Pro's first taste of this new system - Realme UI v.RMX1851EX_11_C.01 - confers this total UI overhaul, and is based on Android 10. The OEM has stated that its roll-out will start slowly, being issued to a limited pool of "random users" at first, which will serve to help monitor it for critical bugs. Should Realme UI for the 3 Pro prove free of these, it will be pushed to more and more users over time.
